    You know, Joey would not post your weight Gabriel, so you better be careful what you say about his.

    - Yup I checked it with the POKE method and there is not any springiness just poke poke and no jiggle.

    He likes being an 18 pounder who stands tall. he has very long legs and was a few inches taller than Mona.

    aren't we all glad our animals can't use the computer. No telling what they'd post about us.

    Hi there all of you humans, this is JOEY. I did a POKE test on my daddy and almost lost my paw in there. Jiggle factor is very high, my Daddy is short only about, how would you humans say it? 5 foot 7 inches tall? But I love my dad because he feeds me, brushes me, skritches my ears and even brushes my teeth. But I am going to share a secret: I sleep next to my daddys head so when he startes making that noise at night, I think you call it snoring, I can whip my tail in his face and make him stop because he rolls away from me then. What else do you want to know about the old boy?

    Waldo, Rosie and Bogie are conferring notes right now and arguing over who gets to post all the "dirt".

    Vienna Welcomes Surprise Panda Love Child

    Attachment 21821Attachment 21822

    The first baby panda born in European captivity in a quarter century came into the world in Vienna on Thursday. He's not cute yet, but Knut's reign as Europe's favorite bear may be numbered.

    Move over Knut! It's time to meet the new star on the European baby bear circuit.

    Weighing in at just 100 grams (3.5 ounces), only 10 centimeters long and as yet without a name, the most recent ursine wonder -- born on Thursday in the Schönbrunn Zoo in Vienna -- is the first baby panda to be born in a European zoo since 1982.

    Berlin's famous polar bear though, has a bit of time to get used to the idea of being shoved unceremoniously out of the spotlight. The new giant panda -- born to Yang Yang, who is on loan from China -- has no hair and likely won't start crawling for another four months. Zookeepers won't even know its gender for about three weeks.

    Still, the zoo is ecstatic about the new arrival. And it came as something of a surprise. An ultrasound on Yang Yang at the beginning of the month had revealed no signs of pregnancy. A few days ago, keepers started getting suspicious as the seven-year-old panda began building a nest -- though it wasn't the first time she had done so. Then, on Thursday, a surveillance camera began detecting squeals coming from Yang Yang's enclosure.

    Of particular note, Yang Yang was naturally impregnated rather than being artificially inseminated as giant pandas often are in captivity. Indeed, zoos have often resorted to showing often-reticent pandas ursine porn films to try to get them in the mood.

    ang Yang, whose name means "Sunshine" in Chinese, seems to be off to a good start, having accepted her newborn. It is not uncommon for animals in captivity to reject offspring -- as happened to Knut, who was famously raised by keeper Thomas Dörflein. The Viennese zoo has an incubator and artificial milk ready in case Yang Yang changes her mind.

    Still, there are challenges ahead. Only about 60 percent of baby pandas survive their first year. The officials at the Vienna zoo, however, are likely to do all they can to help Yang Yang out.

    Knut, after all, doubled attendance at the Berlin zoo since he made his first public appearance in March. Schönbrunn is no doubt hoping its newest addition will do the same for them.

    Oh, that's good news. Love my Panda's!

    Re: For animal lovers

    Heh Heh heh - Squeeker trust me you are better off in the screened porch. There are things outside that are more fun to watch than to be in the middle of. Yes you are safer there, I know my Dad took me for something called a walk when I was a little fella and the noise and everything made me want to run but I didn't know which way. If my dad hadn't had me on a leash and harness I might have gotten run over by a car or hurt by bad people. I've never been outside since. But it is fun sitting in the window and laughing at what I see.

    Re: For animal lovers

    I finally got pics of my cat Carl in the FDC position- it's his favorite, but every time I grab the camera he rolls over or gets up and walks over to me.



    This one is my favorite, because he looks kind of ferocious, but he's really just being lazy and yawning.

    I was made to understand there were grilled cheese sandwiches here.
